Mrs. Maria Bolen

My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 17 years. We have been blessed with 3 children: Joe Hunter who is 15, runs cross country and plays soccer, Breanna who is 11 and plays softball and basketball, and Mercy who is 8 years old, loves horses, dogs, and gymnastics. We also have 5 dogs who are like children: Petey, Jack, Sweet Pea, Junebug, and Buttercup. I enjoy spending time sitting on my back porch, playing with my dogs, running, and coaching my daughter’s softball team. Whenever possible, I also love traveling! Guatemala is one of my favorite places to visit.
